Great Day at the Beach

Even though they live on an island this was the first time swimming in the ocean for some of these Filipinos. We loaded 14 people in a 5 passenger Toyota Avanza (not unusual for the Philippines) and headed for a public beach on Panglao Island. The cabanas are not as good and there are no overnight accomodations, but the water is just as warm, the sand just as nice and it's just as much fun as at the resort a few meters down the beach. The girl on the right in the pink suit and holding the starfish is the photographers daughter. Panglao is a popular resort and scuba diving spot in the Phils.
